    Changing career 29th Nov 17 at 12:07 PM
    Anyone out there know if there is an online service where you punch in your details and your current job skills and it belches out alternative career options? Or similar....

    Without going into what I do, if I have to do it for much longer, I'm going to throw myself under a tram.

    Have you tried the National Careers Service? https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk/skills-health-check/home

    You might also consider thinking of what types of thing you would like to do, then researching to see how you current skills would mesh with that, or indeed what other jobs there might be in the field you're interested in.

    Is also suggest looking for careers services in your area. If you are a graduate, check whether your university has a careers service and whether they support alumni, or only current students.

    Well there's no clues about what you do but where... probably Manchester...Croydon....Hull.... and as for low job satisfaction - hmm could be anything as we all have "sod this" days, but my money is on nursing or general NHS or teaching.

    I think maybe for the sake of your mental health you should see your doctor?
